Principal's Message

Mrs. Wavering
 

Dear Magnolia Families,

Welcome to Magnolia School and the 2019/2020 school year!   We hope everyone had a wonderful summer and are ready for the new school year.  The district maintenance and grounds team were hard at work over the summer making improvements around our campus as well as our wonderful custodial staff working to get all spaces clean and sparkling.  

This year Magnolia will be focusing on strengthing our Mustang PRIDE, positive behavior program as we launch year two of the program as well as implementing the district's focus on Social Emotional Learning, Literacy, and Numeracy.  We are also fortunate to have Mr. Goussen at Magnolia full time this year in the role of Student Support Specialist.  One of his first goals is to expand our very popular Watchdog Dad's program that was implemented late last year.   

Magnolia has a shared partnership between home and school and our staff is looking forward to having your family join our school community.  Our expectation is that students and staff meet academic standards, recognize and appreciate individual and cultural differences, and effectively learn to resolve problems.  We will be implementing year three of AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination).  This program promotes a college-going culture and prepares students to be successful as they advance through  K-12 and higher education. By November of this year, we should have all teachers in grades 3-6 trained in AVID. 

School is your child’s place of work and learning is serious business. Please help your child develop good attendance habits by bringing him/her to school on time every day.  Children who arrive at school at 7:35 AM (9:45 for Late-Bird Kindergarten) have time to visit with friends and relax before the busy workday begins.  The tardy bell rings at 7:50. Students arriving after the tardy bell must get a pass from the office. 

I would like to thank you all in advance for all the wonderful contributions you will make to the students and staff at Magnolia. I look forward to a successful school year together.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Wavering
